“Who Trains (Or Dresses) These People?”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

OK, at $3 bucks the beer price was fair and it was cold. The bar food was good although it's odd watching a chef try to make simple food appear gourmet. I sometimes worry about freshness with such a sparse crowd, especially if everyone else in the neighborhood is fairly packed. But when I heard the waitress tell a customer they were out of shrimp I got over my fear. Out of shrimp? They must buy just for the next meal so if 20 people show up to eat it runs them out (we didn't see twenty people total and we were there for over an hour). Honestly, I've never heard that one in a fishing village! And it's a shame because this place could be great.
Our biggest complaint was the interior atmosphere - some great ideas (and some dumb ones regarding layout/unnecessary walls) - essentially just really poor execution. The furniture's old fashion, tacky pool room stuff - not hip stuff or cool stuff or old wooden stuff - brand new cheap stuff! Nothing of any interest is on the walls and the lighting looks bizarre coupled with their beautiful bar. But, it was the servers and the guy our bartender said was 'the owner' that really got us. He was dressed in a sleeveless crew shirt cut off at the armholes deep in conversation at the other end of the bar with somebody who appeared just as dilapidated as he did. That image didn't instill much confidence. The servers were pushing steaks and crab salads in really cheap looking tee-shirts along with some really bad hair, which doesn't go too well with fine dining suggestions.
We will try the place again because there's simply no reason it should be empty when everyone else is packed. The prices are quite fair. They just need some experienced help with their decorating - then if they spiff up the crew a little (and teach them to pay attention) the restaurant will do much better I'm positive. Terrific inlet views from the upstairs deck.

“FOOD = DELICIOUS SERVICE = EXCELLENT VIEW = BEAUTIFUL!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

The Crooked Floor Tavern is not fancy inside or outside, BUT the FOOD is DELICIOUS, the SERVICE is EXCELLENT, and the VIEW is BEAUTIFUL!!!

I've dined here several times with large groups of friends, anywhere from 8 to 32! Mike and his staff always come through. Even though the last I am sure we overwhelmed them with 32 dinner orders all at once, each dinner came out picture perfect and perfectly delicious!!! They are so accommodating and friendly, too!

There may be a few fancier places along the the Marshwalk, but none have better food!

Thanks, Mike, for another great night!!!

“Saloon”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

If you like sports bars this is worth a try, I guess. We went on a weeknight and ate inside because it was cold. There are tv's everywhere but it was almost empty and we got a table in a side room with the volume of the tv turned down. The service was okay and the drinks were reasonable compared with other places nearby. The entree menu is small and everyone was satisfied with the food. I guess is is a typical saloon which is not our cup of tea. They completely remodelled the building before opening including adding a rooftop bar so it looks nice on the outside.

“Disappointing.”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We tried this place out for the playoff games based on their menus on their website. We got there and found a small bar where you had to sit with your back to the bar to watch tv. The bar actually faces the outside bar and patio area and is open to that area. Everyone sitting at the outside bar was smoking so the inside was filled with cigarette smoke. The menu on the website is doesn't really exist, so there were no .35 cent wings, no $5, $6 and $7 appetizers. The only specials were a $4 bloody Mary which was weak and made with premade mixer and a bucket of beer which is readily available anywhere. We left after 1 drink and went elsewhere.
